We are excited to introduce a new line of boutique fragrances to our Romualdo clients - D.S. & Durga. As we continue to grow our offerings, we will always find new and interesting lifestyle brands that will elevate your everyday life.
D.S. & Durga niche fragrance house was founded in New York in 2007 by David Seth Moltz (D.S.), a musician, and Kavi Moltz (Durga) an architect. Combining their two industries, the couple writes ‘songs’ in scent, while designing ‘houses’ for the fragrances. The artistic pair is inspired by a myriad of influences, including historical movements and Americana. Each fragrance tells a tale that the couple believes can be communicated through layers scent.
Our Current Collection of D.S. & Durga Scents Include:
Bowmakers: Amongst the transcendental woods of the 1800s, craftsmen from the
Massachusetts Bay Colony built violins & bows in the tiny towns of the Pioneer Valley. The shops were riddled with old growth mahogany, burled maple shavings,
amber pine rosin, aged walnut & their unique secret varnishes.
Cowboy Grass: American sagebrush, flowering white thyme, & prairie switchgrass from the wild western territories. Perfect for robbing banks on horseback.
Italian Citrus: A bracing cologne of coastal Italian citrus rinds - chinotto, blood orange, cold-pressed lemon and green mandarin with ambrette seed & clean musk.
Radio Bombay (Coming Soon): Transistor radio hewn of sandalwood radiates ragas in the Bandra heat. Hot copper tubes warm the soft wood releasing blooms of musk, cream, peach, ambrette, coco, cedar distillates.
Burning Barbershop: A fire broke out in the Curling Bros. barbershop in Westlake, N.Y. in 1891. All the shaving tonics with their spearmint, lime, vanilla & lavender burned. A charred bottle was found half-full. It smelled like this.
Mississippi Medicine: Based on the rituals of the proto-Mississippian death cult of the 1200s. Native birch tar, viola, & white spruce grounded in incense & cypress root.
Of Note, D.S. & Durga fragrances and packaging are unisex.
